Yes, about the telemetry it states:

"Receiver is able to accept 2 analog inputs, which can be used to monitor battery voltage, temperature sensor, etc., and transfer them to transmitter. Users can set the Alarm Level of these analog voltages, when exceed or below these levers, sound alarm is issued."

Flying FPV, I'll rely on the OSD for that info. I went with this b/c it's about the cheapest way to get decent range out of 2.4GHz.

I have the FRSKY DIY module inside my 9X connected to ER9X firmware so the telemetry is usable in the radio - like showing RSSI in the display and have alarms go off before you loose signal

I also have the patch antenna but it is still unused.

You said that it will be up to 10 km! That is a lot of distance! How much is it for the module?

I´ve heard of the Dragon Links, which give you even more than that.

Since you´ve bought the Frsky module, why not the Dragonlink? (Cheap or better?)
How about you tell us about your experience with it, as you´ve got it now :D
Well yeah FPV is the right kinda thing for isn´t it?

I intend to fly FPV with my modified radio but I have not initiated the replacement yet.
My radi is fully programmed so its just a matter of removing the AR7000 and use FRSKY RX instead

The FrSky module with the V8 RX is $38 from Hobby King

FrSky DJT 2.4Ghz Combo Pack for JR w/ Telemetry Module & V8FR RX

FrSKY 2.4GHz patch antenna for $15

and finally the 2.4GHz 1W amplifier for FrSky for $45.

I went this route because of cost since I'm just getting into FPV...10KM is farther than I'll be flying for a while...plus this setup will plug right into the Turnigy 9x.

Who can get the furthest.

The problem I think is that if you want to test that you will have to use a FPV system to see or control the plane. And I don´t know about any FPV system that lasts for more than 2 miles max!

But the Joshes could give it a try though

If you add gear like Eagletree you can use the RTH feature (return to home)

Fly out until you loose signal and RTH kicks in and see in OSD and Google map how far you went before you lost signal.

Takes a bit to set up RTH properly but well worth it

No I haven´t but you can maybe give me a link, coz I don´t know where to find that. Is it one of the very few episodes of FT I haven´t seen or just a vid on youtube?

But I have seen planes reaching miles and miles! Quite awesome!

Anyway the fact the they fley away 27 miles is just crazy! and the calculation says eeven 120 miles.

Thats incredible!

On Rcgroups.com is a record thread for max range with 5,8 ghz. And even with 5,8 ghz 200mW they reached 8km, and the pilot says 9km would would also work. So Flitetest Team, Turnigy9x + FlySky + Patch + Booster ... + 5,8ghz 200mW with Cloverleaf and Patch = break 10km record with low cost setup :)

I plan on doing something similar with a 9X just for FPV. I was actually thinking of going down the FrSky DIY Kit that's installed internally. This may be a better option :)
